that very small region in the middle of the state very hard. president obama was in that area yesterday. governor romney is here in the milwaukee area today. what happened in green bay will not translate, likely, throughout the entire state, but you can imagine that the folks who are tied to the defense contracts will be leaning towards mitt romney because it hits home for them. bottom line here in wisconsin, like many other states across this country, jobs is the number one issue. >> the recovery here in nevada has been spotty at best. so has the highest unemployment rate in the country. 11.8% here in clark county. 12.3%. we're on top of the stratosphere here. this hotel and casino has poured more than $20 million into renovations in the last couple of years. they are optimistic that things are going to get better. they even added jobs, more than 100 in the last couple of months. and there are others smaller signs that things are getting better. that's the strip behind me, the big blue building to the left, that's 70% completed for more than a year. it cost $2.9 billion to ge

issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for endorsing president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> ana, discuss. >> well, look, he has since walked it back and admitted that there are policy issues that colin powell is a friend of his. i think what he said was not the right thing to say. i don't think it was correct. i think colin powell is a very respected person. >> ana, ana, ana, listen, why is john sununu after all the things he says -- i'm just asking and i'm not a partisan person. people will say, oh my gosh, you're carrying water for obama. i'm not. it doesn't matter to me. i'm a journalist. or that you like -- you guys are trying to get mitt romney elected president. neither of which is true. but why is john sununu a surrogate for the romney campaign when he says such outlandish you know what? why? >> i don't know why they would use him at this stage of the game, frankly. because he is somebody that does not hav

obama. in the battleground state of ohio, a poll of likely voters gives the president a 48% to 45% edge. and a star tribune poll gives the president a three-point advantage. but that's also within the poll's margin of error. super stom sandy is bearing down on election 2012. both campaigns don't want to bother you while you watch the water rise in your basement. but the storm is suspending early voting and the optics of both campaigns, president obama has a quick campaigning and run to country. and mitt romney can't attack the president while he's trying to steady the ship, or can he? with us is lz granderson and will cain. thanks for joining us, guys. >> we just heard the president has decided not only to cancel a florida campaign appearance he had scheduled forred to but also canceling another one scheduled for washington so he can be in d.c. and keep the ship steady. i suppose that's a great idea, right, lz? >> it's the smart idea. that's what the president of the united states should do in a situation like this. we're talking about a storm that could impact as far west as wisc

portion of the state that's heavy on manufacturing of ships and cars, especially since obama has been getting a lot of credit for helping to save the u.s. auto industry. that doesn't seem to make sense. >> right. well, actually, the northern part, especially the northeastern part is traditionally democratic. the northwestern part has been democratic, but if you move away from toledo, it gets to be a little less. so it's consistently, really, especially northeast ohio, cleveland area, akron area, that's traditionally democratic. it's a matter of whether president obama can keep up with those margins that he had in 2008 there. >> 800,000 ohioans have already voted. early voting is really kind of maybe changing the landscape of this election season. is there any way of knowing to whose advantage this will be, romney or obama? >> yeah, there are two ways to tell. one is our poll. it seemed about one in five voters had said they voted early and they were definitely going for obama in the early polling. as well, you can look at where the returns are coming in. you can't tell who voted for w

. so at this point right now, suzanne, the state of the campaign, president obama was supposed to hold a rally this morning in florida. he did not attend. he came back to washington. governor romney is participating in some campaign events as we speak, but this evening he will not be -- will he cancel his events later this evening. there will be no events tomorrow, suzanne, so, yes, eight days before the election, this sandy has thrown a big wrench to the campaign. >> is there any sense from the obama campaign that this really allows the president to do something that mitt romney can't do, which is look presidential to have a real test of his leadership at a time that is critical to the nation? >> well, you know, suzanne, they won't outwardly say that, but, in fact, this is an opportunity for president obama, i think, to be able to step up and show that he is a leader, and i think that's why we saw governor romney take the action and cancel his campaign events as well. governor romney did pretty well in this last presidential debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways tha

me at the moment. i've got bigger fish to fry than that and so do the people of the state of new jersey. >> checking in on the storm's impact on the presidential election. >>> to the presidential election now. president obama and mitt romney caught in the middle of the storm. both men have a tough balancing act, between the campaign and responding to the disaster. dana bash joining us d.c. the president, being president, in the white house, in the situation room, talking with governors and that's the power of being the incumbent. mitt romney's trying to stay relevant, holding events with relief groups in ohio. does it help, look like he's trying to be political? can he do anything at this point? >> well, let's start with the president. he's trying to look presidential. it's easy when he has that title. he canceled tomorrow's campaign events as well as today's. but he does have the benefit of incumbency. he's using that benefit, big time. the white house released new photos of him getting a briefing inside the white house situation room. getting much imagery of obama in command. t
